Family Christmas Card

The first project I ever had printed was this family Christmas card. I designed it, and my Dad paid to have it printed. It was made in 1996, the same year as the first Government’s National Lottery Scratch Card, which I stapled to the front of each card, giving the recipient the chance of winning one hundred thousand pounds. I am not a gambler but liked the idea of paying one pound to give a friend the chance of winning one hundred thousand. A few people won ten pounds, and Dorothy Whalley mistakenly threw the card away thinking it was junk mail.
